Brother Smartness of Postgraduate Musings on mixed-race twins.

I thought, I’d flip the script and post this picture of these odd defying fraternal twins who were born in May of 2006. The chances of having twins that are so drastically different in their racial makeup is about 100-1. I can’t help but to be fascinated by this phenomena. I wonder how one would go about addressing race in a family such as this.

Interesting stuff. How should such applicants check the boxes on the Common Application? How should Williams classify them in its annual nose-couting exercises? More here from the very non-pc folks at Gene Expression.

Perhaps we can all agree that, for a start, Williams should release the underlying data, should let us know just what boxes are checked in what combination on the Common Application. Is transparency too much to ask for?
